Eid Mubarak to all. May Allah accept our fasting. May he also fill all the gaps we had in this with our shortcomings with good deeds. We are praying on Friday in Malawi.

Eid saeed.

My sisters doing Eid Friday tho, after the Hilal fiasco and the almost 28 day Ramadan, a lot of masjids are doing 30 day fasts to be on the safe side. Saudi officials should be ashamed frankly.

Such a shame as we all started together so united.

We'll find out today whether it's on Friday or Saturday, according to calculation it will be Friday but India goes by sighting it.

There was an announcement from Saudi yesterday that everyone should start sighting the moon as they started Ramadan early & if the moon was sighted we should celebrate Eid on the 28th day and keep one fast later on any day but the two eids.

I seriously think the UK needs to stop following Saudi Arabia, I vividly recollect the year we were told that Eid had been declared too early & promptly paid fidya for the entire kingdom. Except there's us following them like so many sheep.

We need our own moon sighting committee & go with what they find

Here's what I found. Ramadan began after 30 days of Shaban, not by sighting the moon because during the last days there were sandstorms. So, there might've been the possibility that Ramadan was declared a day late. That's why they asked people to sight the moon a day early, had it been sighted eid would've been after 28 days and they'd have to make up a day later on to compensate for the first day. Anyway, none of that is necessary now, alhamdulilah.

UK follows Saudi? Never knew that. The state of Kerala follows Saudi in India, the other states have their own hilal committees and go by sighting the moon. Last year the moon wasn't sighted in our state so based on the rest of India and the need to stay united, the chief declared eid.

Salam,

We used to do Eid day diaries at one time!! Well as for our Eid, we decided to go to the 8am Eid prayer, they're almost on the hour from 6am to 11am!! So crazy... so you can just pick which one you want to go to. We got ready and took some requisite Eid pics, opened our Eid presents (I got Eidi and brK got a new phone!!)!! Then we drove over to the Mosque. There were a lot of stalls outside and ppl selling things. The ladies were split up in two halls, and we could see the mens on a big screen. Sh Kamal al Makki from America gave our khutbah (go USA!) Some of the ladies started leaving right after Eid salah!! Uhhhhh it don't count unless u listen to the khutbah! Luckily they have alot of those volunteer ladies that were making ppl sit back down!  madauntie

Then we went to the in-laws house and had some nice traditional desserts, more present/eidi exchange. Then we went home to have our traditional 'eid nap'. And in the evening we went to dinner at my mother-in-laws house. She made some awesome lamb biryani! So there you have it!!

Salam alaikum

So glad you had a nice first eid, mashaAllah. Mandatory eid nap, good for you, mashaAllah:-) and getting to spend time with the family is special too...

Oh the mosque stories are the same all over the world...our imam even announced that those who want to leave should just go quietly and not make more noise outside the masjid. But nobody heard him anyway...sigh...guess it dont matter where you go.

Thanks for the eid diary...i didnt even think of taking pics, inshaAllah next eid...

Wasalam

Salamun alaikum

We didn't have options like you had sister Jannah as the two masjids around us prayed Eid on Thursday as against the announcement by the Kenyan Muslims council and we no knowledge of the mosques in Nairobi that would pray on Friday. We could have joined one of them if we had known earlier that everyone around us was gonna pray that day. Anyway, I am more comfortable with the opinion of every region going by their own sighting. I was surprised when someone told me one mosque announced that they would go by any sighting anywhere in the world because they didn't pray on Wednesday which was the official Eid day in Niger republic. I hate these divisions, but since there's little one can do, I just pray God accept everyone's Ibadah.

I found a brother on twitter who gave me directions to a mosque in the southern part of Nairobi that would pray at 8:30. We commuted via commercial bus which made us arrived there at around 8:45. Luckly, they decided to start the prayer at 9:00. The Khudbah was so inspirational and well timed. I wished I had recorded it. One of the things talked about was about the gravity of hurting/harming others and he stressed on the power of du'a of someone who is hurt (whether muslim or non muslim). That person's du'a has no any barrier! He also reminded us on the recommended sittu shawwal fasting.

We came back to our house at around 11am. We had a dinner together with some of the christian students we stay with. It was awesome indeed and I think everyone enjoyed it. The evening was for calls and messages to people at home for good wishes. We went to an amusement park the following day (yesterday) where we had some Eid fun (we played golf and some other stuff excluding haram ones I guess). The Eid has not been as boring like we anticipated.
